Dr Ivan Chee – General Dentist

Dr Ivan CheeDr Ivan Chee BDent (Syd)

After being brought up on the South coast and in Hurstville Dr Ivan Chee attended Sydney Technical High School, then graduated from the University of Sydney in 2010 after completing a Nuclear Medicine degree and working at Westmead Dental Hospital and Wollongong Hospital. He has also worked in private practices around Sydney, most recently in Miranda.

 

Ivan’s favourite areas of dentistry would especially be Paediatric Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Crown and Bridgework. In Wollongong Hospital, he has been spending considerable time treating oncology patients, an area in which most dentists do not have a lot of experience. He has a soft heart for elderly nursing home patients and those requiring special care. Expanding his knowledge and skills is constantly on his mind.

 

Ivan has particular empathy for people who are a little worried in the dental chair, having been that way himself when a child. He strives to help calm these anxieties by providing honest, gentle and thorough care to his patients. Ivan also enjoys talking to young and old patients alike. Ivan speaks Cantonese fluently.

 

When there is a spare moment, you will find him helping out at church or camping out in the bush, preferably somewhere without mobile reception! The two people Ivan couldn’t do without? His wife and son! His wife keeps him grounded and his son has made him re-evaluate his time and priorities.
